“When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion” – an Ethiopian Proverb.
Well ‘Tate the Biscuit’, has the makings of a roaring success. This exhibition displays a huge collection of street artists, conceptual artists, installation artists, painters, graphic illustrators and photographers, who all come together under the roof of Shoreditch Town Hall to create interpretations of proverbs and phrases.
In room after room, juxtaposed artwork covers more than 15,000 sq feet – Even the walls breathe out a creative essence of their own making. One minute you are in a room full of glowing polystyrene pods – next you move into a room crammed with installation petals – move onwards and ponder the life size sculpture of a seven year old boy created in green fibreglass – whilst beckoning you from the corner of yet another room is a strange doll with many arms. ‘Tate the Biscuit’ is a kaleidoscopic display showcasing the best of contemporary British street art.
You can also view a huge selection of limited edition prints such as a Panda in a bar, a Muslim bride, from the banal and everyday to high fashion. This show is an extraordinary roundabout which has many roads that lead you into an ‘Aesthetic Urban Vision’, the journey can’t be missed!
Artworks for sale from £5 – £5000.
